NYC ING Marathon: The Fans

In case you missed it, the New York City Marathon happened this Sunday. Staggered start times staved off intense crowding later in the morning, but excitement was, nevertheless, in the air.

Seeing the friends and family of 45,000 very different people show up to offer their support against the backdrop of the Atlantic Subway Station on Fourth Avenue and Flatbush was profoundly affective. And, as much as the marathon is about the amazing feat the runners accomplish, the fans are pretty interesting themselves.

The crowd seemed almost as energized as the runners themselves, and the outpouring of excitement and affection was occasionally tempered by anxiety at not seeing their friend or sister or son in the pack. But for the most part, people seemed happy to be there. That, of course, could have been from the Bloody Mary’s that the bar Pacific Standard was offering from 7 a.m. Sunday morning, in honor of the event.
